Dancing Children Disappear

1)

every sorcererís apprentice

stops to look for nothing

and finds the very thing he seeks

only to make it something

O Carlos, your arms are overladen!

 

every pope and preacher

pauses at a whisper

and turns the voice of nothing

into useless thunder

O Moses, your back is overburdened!

 

every dilettante philosopher

cannot decline to dance

nothing is no wallflower

but nothing is not chance

O Frederick, your heavy thoughts have broken your neck!

 

2)

one beginning, one single flow

one raging river, nowhere to go

one love, one blood, one single flood

one dream, one idea, nowhere to grow

born of nothing, dimension and frame

out of nothing, more of the same

one beginning, one surge, one mind

one unrestrained feeling, one heart, one end

drops in a flood, thoughts in a thought

inherit the flow, inhabit the stream

from nothing to nothing, swept away in a dream

one beginning, one end, one nothing

 

3)

half naked trees shivering

in a cold relentless autumn rain

love is the cornerstone, not the foundation

love will always rest on frozen ground

in a cold autumn rain

inside the highest love,

one beginning, one end, one nothing

 

drink from the half frozen sink hole

muddy chilling water

let the artic flow divide and cut

let the river flow

gnawing block by block through delusion

the frozen ground may split at any time

only the cold is not an illusion

one beginning, one end, one nothing

 

love is born in the dead of winter

not in the heat of the moment

our mother is ice

our father is emptiness

we are only sparks and shards

of that pristine collision

one beginning, one end, one nothing

 

4)

hope is the product of error

if we have hope

we have believed a lie

 

chance is the product of hope

if we are abandoned to chance

we have believed a lie

 

power comes from abandonment to chance with hope

if we have gained manipulative power

we have believed a lie

 

power is everything

everything is absolute nothing, is one, is desolation

we have believed a lie

 

individual cannot be

individual is the true destiny

which is the lie?

 

individual is hidden (this is the truth)

the truth is not hidden

but individual is hidden

 

one beginning, one end, one nothing

is only individual, only hidden

hidden by love

love is the veil

neither lie, nor truth

love is the veil

behind love is individual

 

one beginning, one end, one nothing

only individual

absolute nothing is desolation

everything is desolation

intellect is desolation

reason in search of itself

can only find nothing

nothing can only bring forth reason

the power of reason comes from nothing

the power of nothing is reason

reason and nothing contend

 

nothing cannot destroy reason

it brings forth reason inevitably

reason cannot destroy nothing (it is born of nothing)

the peace between reason and nothing

is self amazement, is self containment

is love, is individual

individual is because of the container - love

love is because of the contained - reason and nothing

individual is peace

love is neither truth nor lie

love is the container

love is the veil, love is flesh

the flesh is the love

the love is the peace

of one beginning, one end, one nothing, individual

 

the flesh is neither truth nor lie

it brings the feast to us

the feast of individual

the feast is meant to fill us

give us a taste of peace

a peace that brings forth flesh

 

5)

there are no mysteries only lies

comprehension eludes us because we try

dancing children disappear

over the horizon of our fear

 

there are no answers we can see

we make ourselves questions trying to be

dancing children disappear

out of sight in bewildered tears

 

there is no new law we can keep

what we really are is fast asleep

dancing children disappear

outside the dream that we hold dear

 

in the haunted forest the wind will rage

and blow our memory off the page

dancing children disappear

into the night that we bring near

 

we strain toward the whisper beyond the veil

leaving behind the holy grail

dancing children disappear

into the words we wait to hear

 

once contained in love, and free

turned out by what we cannot see

dancing children disappear

contorted in their parentsí fear

 

when the nothing meets its reason

just when peace has come in season

dancing children disappear

clawing to get out of here

 

6)

dancing children disappear

we all begin contained in love

 

dancing children disappear

the love is flesh not yet our own

 

dancing children disappear

out of nothing and reason we must clothe ourselves

 

dancing children disappear

we cannot bring the two to rest

 

dancing children disappear

our whole world prefers a mystery

 

dancing children disappear

we never give birth to ourselves

 

dancing children disappear

we never contain what we are

 

dancing children disappear

we never make hand in place of hand

 

dancing children disappear

we never form the flesh

 

dancing children disappear

we never make the marriage

 

dancing children disappear

dancing children disappear

dancing children disappear

dancing

        dancing

               dancing children disappear

                                                      disappear

                                                                disappear
